The GLD-80 is a user-friendly, cost effective and scalable live digital mixing system, conceptually based on the hugely successful digital iLive series.

Plug n’ play I/O expanders make it easy to build systems with up to 48 mic inputs, supported by a full suite of apps, software and personal monitoring solutions.

At the heart of the system is the GLD80 mixer, providing 48 input processing channels, 8 stereo FX returns fed by Allen & Heath's acclaimed FX emulations, 30 configurable buses, 20 mix processing channels, and DSP power to provide full processing without compromise.

Welcome to the new GLD Chrome Edition, with sleek new styling, Automatic Mic Mixing, new embedded plugin FX and new compressor models on all channels.
